Professional career

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 CFL season, he was also un-signed in 2020.[4]

On July 10, 2021, it was announced that Domagala had re-signed with the Tiger-Cats.[5] He was signed to the team's practice roster to begin the 2021 season where he spent the first two games. Following the team's bye week, Domagala was promoted to the active roster and made his regular season professional debut on August 27, 2021, in a game against the Montreal Alouettes.[6] He converted his first career field goal attempt which was from 12 yards out and finished the game with two field goals out of four attempts and had five kickoffs for a 60.6-yard average.[6]
